PVL: Bea de Leon remains day-to-day

ChocoMucho head coach Oliver Almadro is not in a hurry to activate middle blocker Bea de Leon. The multi-titled mentor wants De Leon to get into tip-top shape before fielding the two-time UAAP champion in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference. De Leon sat out the Flying Titans’ debut on Wednesday as ChocoMucho made quick work of BaliPure, 25-12, 25-18, 25-18, at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.     “Kailangan namin i-strengthen pa ‘yung legs niya kasi after UAAP, nag-therapy muna siya and then hindi pwedeng kailangan sabak kaagad so strengthening muna, kailangan maibalik,” said Alamdro on his main piece during Ateneo de Manila University’s title run in UAAP Season 81. De Leon was in the venue helping the team during their warm-ups and during their huddles. “Slowly nagpa-practice naman na siya. So, we just miss her now,” said Almadro. The mentor added that he’s just waiting for the green light to field in De Leon.   “Ang kailangan ko talaga 100 percent. Kami namang coaches, nagre-rely kami sa report ng mga therapists namin, PT namin at tsaka ng mga doctors. ‘Pagka sinabi ng doctors, o 100 percent, good,” said Almadro, who relied on Arianna Angustia and Shannen Palec in the absence of De Leon. “’Pag sinabi 80 percent, no, I like one hundred percent. Ganoon naman kami as a team so we have to make sure na 100 percent sila para they can give 100 percent also,” he added. “Sa ngayon, day-to-day siya e.” De Leon will also be doubtful in the Flying Titans' game against PacificTown Army on August 21.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP Season 81 Final Four: It’s a test of character -- Ateneo s Almadro

Even after dominating Far Eastern University in the elimination round and earning a twice-to-beat advantage in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball Final Four, Ateneo de Manila University is not taking the Lady Tamaraws lightly. For head coach Oliver Almadro, FEU remains a big threat in the Lady Eagles’ desire to return to the championship round after seeing their six-year Finals stint snapped last year against the same opponent.      Saturday’s semifinals match will be a litmus test for the Lady Eagles, who are looking to return the favor to their last season’s semis tormentors. “It’s a test of character for the team,” said Almadro, who replaced Thai mentor Tai Bundit. Ateneo took the no. 1 seed after closing the elims with a 12-2 win-loss record – those two defeats coming at the hands of three-time defending champion De La Salle University – and set up a third straight Final Four date with the Lady Tamaraws. “Last year, sila ang magkatapat sa semis. It’s time to show our character. We have a chance to show our real character. We have to work hard and play hard to be back in the Finals,” said Almadro, who before taking over the Lady Eagles’ coaching duty brought the Blue Eagles to five straight championship appearance laced with a three-peat.   With a line-up led by graduating players in Bea De Leon and Maddie Madayag out to bring the glory back to Katipunan in their swan songs, and solid support coming from Kat Tolentino, Ponggay Gaston and setter Deanna Wong, the Lady Eagles are primed to make it to the Finals. Add their elims sweep of the Lady Tams and semis advantage, the odds are in favor of Ateneo. But Almdaro is not discounting FEU, besides, the core of last year’s runner-up Lady Tams remains intact. “FEU is really a good team considering ‘yung winning tradition nila,” he said. “We have to respect them. We acknowledge what they can do.” Ateneo may have the numbers of FEU in their first two meetings, but the semis is a different story.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

MPBL: Asistio and Villarias heat up as Bataan downs Zamboanga at home

In an awesome display of long-range sniping, the Bataan Risers held off Zamboanga Family's Brand Sardines 92-79 in Thursday night's featured game at the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season. Playing in front of their fans at the Bataan People's Center in Balanga, the Risers shot 50 percent from rainbow country, 13 from 26, to help bury the Mindanaoan team. Their shooting percentage from three-point land was nine percentage points better than their clip from within the arc. Two names stood out for the home team: Byron Villarias and Anton Asistio. Villarias led all scorers with 23 points on six for eight shooting from three point range while Asistio was white-hot in the third quarter, hitting all five of his three-point attempts in a surreal 5-minute span where he picked up all 15 of his points. "Ang confidence ko galing sa coaches at teammates ko. Alam nila na ang strength ko is shooting. Yan ang hinahanap nila sa akin," said the former Ateneo Blue Eagle. Asistio's jaw-dropping outburst early in the third looked to have doomed Zamboanga, who trailed 35-53 at that juncture. But Zamboanga who had shot just 24 percent from the field in the first half, suddenly found their groove and unspooled an astonishing 16-0 run to pull to within two, 53-51. Leading the way was a razor-sharp Ryan Costelo, who detonated with 19 points in the quarter including four triples of his own. Zamboanga scored 35 points in that quarter, 10 more than they amassed in the entire first half. At the start of the fourth, it was anyone's game with Jong Uichico's men in front 64-60. But whatever momentum the visitors gained in the third vaporized in the last period. Buoyed by a throaty Bataeno crowd, Villarias scored eight points early on, Alvin Pasaol conributed seven and Bataan coasted to victory as Zamboanga ran out of steam. Costelo could only add one more point to his tally as he finished with 20 points. Bataan level their record at 5-5 while Zamboanga, still missing injured cogs Harold Aroleda and Joseph Nalos, are at 6-5. In the second match-up of the day new father Jopher Custodio was the hero as Bacolod Master Sardines emerged 69-68 victors over the Binñan City Krah Heroes. Custodio drained a top-of-the-key triple with 44 seconds left that proved to be the game-winner. Custodio only arrived at halftime reportedly because he rushed to Balanga from a hospital in Quezon City, where his wife had just given birth. He finished with 5 points in 17 minutes of action. Pao Javelona topscored for the Negrenses with 22 points along with 10 assists. Outside-sniping Bacolod was level 52-52 with inside-banging Biñan after three quarters. In a battle of former NU Bulldogs, Javelona dueled withy Krah's Kyle Neypes, and with under two minutes to go the score was knotted again at 66. After Custodio's triple, Biñan homegrown Allan Mangahas cut the deficit to 69-68 with an audacious drive down the middle. After Custodio missed on the next possession Macky Acosta flubbed a lay-up, but when the ball went out the refs reviewed the play and gave the ball to Krah with six tenths of a second left. Neypes' catch and shoot was no good and Bacolod escaped with the win to go to to 4-7. The Laguna side slips to 4-9. Neypes paced the Heroes with 20 points. In the first game on the day's schedule Iloilo United Royals used a ferocious fourth-quarter burst to dismiss the Marikina Shoemasters, 70-55. The Mariqueños were competitive through the first 30 minutes, helped by a strong 19-point third quarter that left them level with the Royals at 44-44 entering the final canto. But midway through the fourth Iloilo showed their class and ruthlessly pounded the Shoemasters to submission. Marikina's Daryl Pascual produced a layup to put them ahead 50-46 with six minutes to go. It would be the Shoemasters' last field goal of the game. Iloilo went on a 24-5 run to finish the contest, highlighted by seven points from Samboy De Leon, a triple from Eric Rodriguez, and baskets and dimes from Aaron Jeruta. Meanwhile on the flip side Marikina served up brick after brick. De Leon topped the scoring charts for Iloilo with 14, followed by Richard Escoto's 13. The Mariqueños could only shoot 27% from the field and were led by Yves Sazon's 15 markers. The Ilonggos improve to 6-4 while Marikina continues to languish in the bottom of the North division with a 1-9 slate......»»

NCAA 95: No doubt, Larry Muyang left it all on the floor in Letran s OT loss to Baste

Colegio de San Juan de Letran was trailing San Sebastian College-Recoletos for majority of their matchup, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. That was until Larry Muyang took matters into his own hands. Muyang came alive in the final frame, scoring 15 of his 32 points to will the Knights into forcing overtime. In the extra period, the burly big man only continued making his presence felt with four points. "Sakin kasi kanina sa game, parang iniisip ko lang na gusto ko lang mag-bounce back kaya lahat ginawa ko na," he said post-game, referring to their previous game - a loss to archrival San Beda University. In the end, however, it was all for naught as they fell, 101-102. "Kaya lang, wala e, ganun talaga. Basketball talaga kaya siguro, 'di rin kami pinalad ngayon," Muyang lamented after he also collected 18 rebounds, two blocks, and two assists. Even worse, Letran's latest loss dropped them to 0-3 up against the other playoff hopefuls in San Sebastian, San Beda, and Lyceum of the Philippines University. "Ngayon sana (yung convincing win namin) kaso minalas. Okay lang naman sa amin kasi napakita namin kung paano kami maglaro ngayon, pero kinapos lang talaga," he said. Still, last season's Rookie of the Year remains upbeat about the Knights' charge to the playoffs - even with a match-up opposite another playoff hopeful in College of St. Benilde coming up. "Kailangang-kailangan namin yun. Kung 'di namin matatalo yung CSB, parang tagilid kami," he said. He then continued, "Pero para sa akin, may tiwala pa rin kami sa isa't-isa lalo na eto na naman yung chance para makatalo ng contender." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Gilas still waiting on Fajardo, Pogoy, Rosario to come in a day or two

All of June Mar Fajardo, RR Pogoy, and Troy Rosario were expected at Gilas Pilipinas' practice, Monday inside the Meralco Gym in Ortigas. All three, however, were not in action as the Philippine national basketball team went on a three-hour training session with less than two weeks before the 2019 FIBA World Cup. "Actually, I thought they were coming today, pero wala pa rin," head coach Yeng Guiao told reporters. "We were trying to get in touch with them, trying to confirm, but so far, wala pang confirmation." Fajardo is fresh off winning a championship for San Miguel while Pogoy and Rosario were key cogs in TNT's runner-up finish last Friday. "Baka pagod pa sila, pero siguro, bukas, nandito na yung mga yun," the Gilas mentor shared. According to team manager Gabby Cui, Pogoy and Rosario will be in attendance for the next practice on Tuesday. Fajardo, meanwhile, remains a question mark as the Beermen are set for a championship celebration on the same day. Still, coach Yeng said they're giving all of them the benefit of the doubt. "Sayang yung araw, nanghihinayang din ako kaya lang, 'di natin sila mapupwersa o mapipilit. Alam din nating galing sila sa Finals so they know how they feel, what their bodies requires," he said. He then continued, "We're giving them the benefit of the doubt." Nonetheless, the Philippine national basketball team remains hopeful it can be at full strength within the week. As their tactician put it, "We'll wait for them one or two more days, pero pag 'di sila dumating, kailangang magdesisyon na rin tayo." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Giants may not have to worry about Eli getting hurt anymore

By Tom Canavan, Associated Press EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — For the first time in about a decade, the New York Giants seemingly don't have to worry about Eli Manning getting hurt. In just two preseason games, first-round draft pick and heir apparent Daniel Jones has shown he can play in the NFL. Take a look at the statistics. Jones is 16 of 19 for 228 yards and two touchdowns. He's completed 84.2% of his passes with a 151.8 quarterback rating. No one ever would have felt the same about former backups Geno Smith, Alex Tanney, Davis Webb, Josh Johnson, Ryan Nassib or Kyle Lauletta in recent years. Jones has changed that feeling by his play. When he takes over remains to be seen. Giants co-owner John Mara said recently he would love to see Manning remain the starter all season and for Jones not to play. Coach Pat Shurmur seconded that approach after New York won its second straight game. So far, there is no need to make the move. Manning has looked good playing just two series. He had a three-and-out against the Jets and hit all four of his passes in engineering a first-drive touchdown against the Bears. He is 5 of 5 for 42 yards and a TD. His quarterback rating is 143.8. Shurmur has said Jones is getting ready to play. On Saturday, in discussing the Giants' 32-13 win over Chicago on Friday night, the coach refused to say if Jones was ready. "I think when his time comes, he's going to be ready," Shurmur said. "I still think we've got training camp left to push through, we've got preseason games left to push through. I would say right now, we're three weeks from any of us being ready, so that's sort of where we're at. We've got work to do, and so that's how I approach that. That would be my answer to that question, I guess." Jones wasn't perfect against the Bears. He lost two fumbles. The first came when he and center Jon Halapio failed to get together on a snap in the red zone. The second came after he was sacked, the result on not keeping two hands on the ball. "You don't want to make any mistakes, but I think it was going to happen and you realize that," Jones said after the game. "There are going to be some mistakes and just figuring that out sometimes. I didn't try to make any mistakes." After watching video of the game, Shurmur felt the Giants were a little loose with the ball overall. TJ Jones, who caught a touchdown pass from Daniel Jones on Friday, muffed a punt. Linebacker Nate Stupar dropped an interception, and the Giants' receivers dropped three other passers. Running back Rod Smith also had a fumble. "Those are all correctable, every one of those, and those are the things that we will continue to focus on as we go through camp," Shurmur said. If there is a concern for Shurmur, it has to be the defense. The first unit gave up a touchdown to Sam Darnold and the Jets on the opening drive in the first game, and backup Chase Daniel led Chicago's second offensive unit to a field goal on the opening series. The Bears did not play their starters. Shurmur downplayed the fast starts, noting the defense limited the Bears to one touchdown and two field goals and had eight 3-out-series. "There were many things that were good," Shurmur said. "Certainly, you don't want anybody to score on the first drive, but I think there was an improvement this game, we forced them to kick a field goal, so I don't see a trend there. Like everything, though, we're fighting to get better in all areas throughout the game." At least Jones seems to be ready......»»

NCAA 95: Spotless CSB gets challenged by streaking LPU

Games on Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre 12:00 p.m. - Perpetual vs San Beda 2:00 p.m. - JRU vs Mapua 4:00 p.m. - CSB vs LPU College of St. Benilde remains unscathed in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament, but coming right for them is smooth sailing Lyceum of the Philippines University. The Blazers stake their spotless slate while the Pirates put their five-game win run on the line in the clash of titans in the middle of the Filoil Flying V Centre floor, Friday. Starting at 4:00 p.m., CSB is out to ace its toughest test thus far in the season even as LPU is out to stretch its streak ahead of its rematch with the defending champions.

NCAA 95: San Beda s Bandana Bros got a Bolick-Mocon-sized chip on their shoulder

San Beda University has remained unscathed in its title defense in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament. Through five games, the Red Lions have set themselves as the standard as they already count victories versus title hopefuls Colegio de San Juan de Letran and San Sebastian College-Recoletos. Even more impressive, the three-peat champions have done it with second-year stars showing the way. Thus far in their sophomore seasons, James Canlas and Evan Nelle have been as good as advertised. Canlas has looked the part of a go-to-guy with averages of 14.6 points, including 32 percent from deep, on top of 5.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists while Nelle seems to be the school's next in a long line of great point guards, averaging 12.2 markers, including also 32 percent from deep, to go along with 6.6 dimes, 5.8 boards, and 1.2 steals. Of course, they have had huge help from the likes of Cameroonian powerhouse Donald Tankoua and Calvin Oftana. Still, the fact remains that the "Bandana Bros." have only proven worthy to be wearing the red and white crowns of leaderships that, for them, just so happen to be, well, bandanas. Even better, rather than be dragged down by the weight of taking over for Robert Bolick and Javee Mocon, both now making waves in PBA, the challenge of being the storied squad's new leaders have actually done nothing but lift up the two. "We want to prove something to everyone that we're still a winning team without Bolick and Mocon," Canlas said. "We're still sophomores, but we just want to improve every game and show what we can do every game." And this is, apparently, just the start for San Beda's "Bandana Bros." as the rest of the league better watch out because both of them also want to prove they can also do what the other does. "Coach puts me at two and Evan at one and we switch," Canlas said. "I can also play the point guard aside from the scoring role and he can do more than just playmaking and passing." That means, Evan setting up a James score in one possession and then Nelle finishing what Canlas started the next? Without a doubt, the Red Lions are in good hands. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
